Zoe Saldana's Twins' Names Are Just Too Cute
Though it was reported on Thursday, Dec. 11 that Zoe Saldana welcomed twin babies into the world with her husband Marco Perego, the couple finally confirmed the news, making it official that there are now two #blessed Saldana-Peregos in the world. The 36-year old actress (who looks younger than me) and her husband confirmed on Twitter that the new babies were for real. A big congratulations to the couple on starting their new beautiful family, with children who will someday, inevitably, have beautiful hair. The twins names are just as cute as the boys surely are: Cy and Bowie.
It's also pleasantly surprising that Saldana confirmed the birth so early on. She's been notoriously secretive about her marriage to Perego, which personally I think is very respectable and VERY difficult to do in Hollywood. In 2013, Saldana revealed that she had gotten married to Perego — but not until six months after the wedding had happened. She said about the so-called secrecy:
I love what I do so much, but I love my [personal] life more. I realized through the years of being in this business that the only way to maintain some kind of sanity is to protect that which is most dear to you, which is your life and everyone that's in it.
I totally agree. Especially with baby-crazy fans (who doesn't love to see what North West is wearing and how she's dressed better than you?), it's tough to maintain that level of privacy, and I hope that Saldana and Perego can keep it up now that they've started their new family. She's said before that she loves using her body in roles (especially since she's racked up so many as an action hero), but I hope she cuts herself a little slack and just enjoys time with her new double trouble babies and her husband. Congratulations!
